Four people were arrested, and heroin and psilocybin mushrooms seized by Monterey police serving a search warrant at a Larkin Street "drug house" Thursday.

Justin Kelly, 24, and Sarah Boffemmeyer, 23, were arrested on charges of "maintaining a drug house" and other drug charges at 4:26 p.m. at their residence on the 400 block of Larkin Street, and Samer Alwahab, 30, and Steven Shortt, 19, both of Monterey, were also arrested on drug charges.

Kelly was arrested for possession of heroin for sale and mushrooms, possession of metal knuckles, and resisting arrest, while Boffemmeyer was arrested for being under the influence of heroin, and both are facing charges of possession of drug paraphernalia and maintaining a drug house.
